All visits to the museum are by guided tour only. Once booked, your visit will be specially guided by one of our expert tour guides who will tailor the visit to your requirements. We are open Monday to Friday, with tours starting at 10.30am or 2pm.
All visits are specially tailored to visitors' needs and must be booked in advance on:
When you email or telephone us to book a visit, please tell us your name and telephone number, how many people you are booking for (maximum 40) and what you'd like from the visit.
Children accompanied by an adult are welcome to visit the museum. Due to the age of the fire engines though we do not allow them to touch or climb on any of the fire engines. However we do explain how they work and how they were used.
We know this may be disappointing for some people but, children will be shown the fire engines, be able to try on firefighter uniforms, and take part in drawing and colouring. We make sure sessions are suited to the age group of the children, and where possible, keep children of a similar age together to ensure all their needs are met. Tours last for approximately one hour.
The museum’s souvenir shop is open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm.
